Hersteller / Manufacturer.
Karl August Seltmann (born 1858, died 1927) was the elder brother of Christian Seltmann (born 1870 - died 1921) who founded the company which became the Seltmann-Weiden ceramics conglomerate. Karl took over an existing business in 1897, run by one L.Künzel, which he ran until his death. At which point his sons-in-law took over until the depression caused financial problems and the factory closed. It was then purchased by Greger and Hillburger on the 1st June 1932 and given the name of Porzellanfabrik Schlottenhof G.m.b.H. The factory ran sucessfully through the 1950's but closed in September 1964, due to a lack of reinvestment in modern machinery.
